APRIL - MOVIES

At a glance, I’m thinking my themes for this month were Romance and Alienation. I’d seen Perfume previously and am happy to say it holds up just fine… (I LOVE PERFUME’S OST.) Thor was a bit of a letdown, and Ender’s Game barely resonated with me on any level. I liked the book! Blue Caprice and Take Shelter are tidily comparable with their mentally ill protagonists, and Fruitvale Station with Hard Candy both deal with injustice. Hanna does everything, but not well. Anyway;

PERFUME - Psychopathic protagonist and lovely V/A is all I needs
THE SPECTACULAR NOW - A teen comedy as a serious drama
THE PAST - Starts out great. Overly complicated plot, soiling an otherwise delicate and relate-able situation
HANNA - Again, too complex for its own good, i.e., Gov’t conspiracy?!… The cool assassin-daughter survival story is great fun though
THOR TDW - Pretty cool, funny. Standard Marvel fare
TAKE SHELTER - Holy hell is Michael Shannon not just the craziest actor available. Watch him lose his shit yet again, now in the Midwest
BLUE CAPRICE - (DC Sniper movie) An apathetic perspective on their mental state (muttering WE WILL MURDER EVERYONE in a Walmart with no context or follow-up) demolishes any hope of understanding or connecting to these killers, which I guess… is the point… 
FRUITVALE STATION - (true story) Deifies the victim of Oscar as more of a Hero-Saint than an actual human being, which for me spoiled the message of “cops/the system is fucked up.” Didn’t feel this
HARD CANDY - Great acting from young Ellen Page. Also, she  really is Ellie. Otherwise, some overwrought plot points and far-reaching scenes take me completely out of the flick

ENDER’S GAME - Deadpan acting is a caveat of blue screen sci-fi epics (and weak directors). Lacks any humanity whatsoever
